Firewall Rules for Instances
Cloud Daddy provides an efficient and user-friendly way to manage firewall rules applied to AWS instances, as well as management of AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall). With Cloud Daddy, you can manage rules in all security groups associated with an instance from a single page. This feature makes it very convenient in managing rules because you can see all rules that regulate the traffic to or from a given instance. Rule templates are included and used to speed up the process of adding and customizing new rules.
Integration with AWS Web Application Firewall(WAF)
AWS WAF is a web application firewall that helps protect web applications from common web exploits that could affect application availability, compromise security, or consume excessive resources. AWS WAF is a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) 3.2 compliant service. Cloud Daddy’s AWS WAF integration with Secure Backup and Disaster Recovery gives you control over what traffic to allow or block to your applications by defining customizable web security rules. You can create custom rules that block common attack patterns, such as SQL injection or cross-site scripting, and rules that are designed for your specific application. New rules can be deployed within minutes, letting you respond quickly to changing traffic patterns.
Detailed Firewall Logs
Cloud Daddy gives you the ability to generate firewall logs for a selected instance over a given period of time. Logs can be exported to CSV or syslog format to perform security analytics using various SIEM and UEBA third party solutions for exploit detection, while providing additional visibility into AWS cloud network events for advanced troubleshooting of issues.
Instance Firewall Cross-Account Security Groups
Cloud Daddy enables you to create firewall rules governing instances and associate firewall rules to security groups that can span cross-accounts. Global cross-account security groups can be configured and stored centrally to have their own set of network traffic rules and conditions that can be created manually or from templates and reused, improving overall security posture and simplifying security group management.
Firewall rules to filter web traffic based on underlying conditions that include IP addresses, HTTP headers and more can be established cross-account and set to provide additional protection from web attacks that attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in applications. Cloud Daddy Secure Backup enables you to manage security groups that are local as well as global cross-account, providing additional layers of protection from cyberattacks.
Firewall Security Group Management
Cloud Daddy enables you to manage AWS security groups and you can create new groups and modify existing groups by adding, removing, and editing rules. Each Security Group, Local or Global (cross – accounts) has its own set of network traffic rules that can be created manually or from templates, improving overall security group management.
Free Desktop App for AWS Instance Firewalling
Cloud Daddy Easy Instance Firewall (EIF) is a free desktop security solution built specifically for Amazon Web Services. The solution simplifies AWS instance firewall configuration, working with security groups and provides tools for firewall logging. EIF connects to your AWS infrastructure using AWS APIs to manage the overall security of instances providing an easy-to-use interface for AWS firewall management.
Amazon GuardDuty Integration
Cloud Daddy strengthens overall data protection with Amazon GuardDuty. Intelligent threat detection is a critical security tool for enterprises in protecting AWS accounts, workloads and ultimately the very backup you’ll need for disaster recovery. Cloud Daddy extends the functionality of Amazon GuardDuty with a dashboard to easily visualize data through the integration of geo-location mapping of alert locations, top threats and malicious IP address diagrams, in addition to easy filtering of findings for simplified understanding and action.
Machine Learning and AI Protection
Cloud Daddy incorporates comprehensive Machine Learning and AI algorithms in creating and analyzing patterns and anomalies of network traffic between instances, as well as performance (CPU, Memory, Disk I/O and Storage) trends and deviations for increased security. Cloud Daddy’s Machine Learning and AI algorithms trigger backups of any instance when unusual network activity or performance is detected, ensuring your backup is protected with an added layer of prevention against ransomware, since infection is usually preceded by infrastructure related network and performance anomalies. Cloud Daddy’s Machine Learning and AI algorithms can also trigger other events such as notifications, stop/start of instances, block the traffic between the instances, AV scans and more.
